We had a wonderful dinner at Chez Billy this past Saturday after missing this place for a long time during the pandemic. Kate, Juan, Harrison and the rest of the team are wonderful, warm and welcoming. They took such good care of us and the food was amazing. This is definitely one of my all time favorite Georgetown restaurants. We especially love the Bar a Vin side of the restaurant and the outdoor courtyard as well.

I had the Loup de Mer which, while delicious, I felt the sauce or general flavor made each item on the plate taste the same. It was almost impossible to differentiate the fish from the other elements.

We ordered the Steak Frites (always excellent) and the Moules Frites. Both were fantastic and the service was on-point, per usual. Highly recommend!

A top dining place with us. Our friend had the sea bass amandine -fresh and beautifully prepared. My husband and I had the Amish chicken with spinach and potatoes dauphinois. Simply delicious! We love Chez Billy!

The restaurant has pared down its former menu, and at the moment lacks a pastry chef, hence no bread or dessert pastries are available. The chef kindly provided us with some toasted slices of baguette to sop up the delicious sauce with our fish. The setting is lovely, and being on the patio is a real plus during warm weather. The ambiance is upbeat, wait staff professional and prompt, and although I have formerly only eaten here in the winter months, I was really pleased at the excellence of the food and service in this spring setting.

Excellent patio dinner, frisee salad wonderful,
Beet salad same. Entrees were mixed, salmon was perfect but duck was stringy, overcooked and way to salty.
Will be back as we love the place, don't order the duck.....

We dine at Chez Billy about once a month and each time we enjoy it a bit more. The staff is the best part of the restaurant: helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, and funny.

The food is fantastic. The wine list is well-appointed.

We love it.

So welcoming and happy for the support. Our waiter Torrance went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed. The onion soup, confit de canard, and mussels were delicious. So was dessert -- we had both on the menu. A terrific place to re-experience dining indoors with properly distanced tables and masked personnel.

Amazing as always! Chez Billy is our go to place when we want to eat and not have to guess how service/food is going to be. Kate and her team are always great and on top of things. We sat in Bar a Vin by the fire and the stools were comfy and our table felt secluded despite the other tables being occupied. We will be back again and again!

The atmosphere, service and wonderful menu are more memorable than the actual food. The food was good, not great. I went on a Sunday evening, perhaps that drove the quality of the food. The flavors were overwhelmingly of salt, and not much flavor. But the space is cozy, the staff are friendly and attentive and the food and drink selection are just right. Wish the execution of the food had been just a bit better. I'd give it another try.

Overall the restaurant is very quiet has a great ambience and excellent service. I love French food but not so much butter. Both dishes the appetizer and the entree were covered with excesiva melted butter at a point that overwhelm the taste of the dish. Too heavy and too rich for my taste. There are only two options of dessert, ordered the chocolate one it was a disaster, old and hard.
